great saw ,worried about durability ?
Feb 2014, I have ran four tanks of fuel through my 545 and I am getting dust in the intake past the air filter this is why I have fair for durability.This saw was built mid 2012, looking at part numbers on Husqvarna's website I've found there are nine updated parts for saws built before may 2013, these include carb air filter clutch cover brake band assy chain tensioner parts crankcase assy and needle bearing that requires a new crankshaft, almost a complete new saw!

I purchased this saw this winter to cut firewood. My cousin and I went out and spent a day cutting and my saw out cut his Stihl all day long. I love the large fuel and oil tank's as they result in fewer fill ups. I also love the light weight, it's just like there's nothing there. I can run this saw all day and just keep going.

Product is well balanced and easy to handle. It has a lot of power.
